However in round three Wales beat France in the Millennium Stadium in what proved to be Doussain's final game of the competition starting in the No.9 shirt.
Doussain did come off the bench in the win over Scotland and the loss to RBS 6 Nations champions Ireland, but saw Maxime Machenaud given the nod to start on both occasions.
But rather than panic about losing his starting berth, Doussain admits it could prove to be a blessing in disguise moving forward.
"That was a good experience for me and I gained a lot of maturity from it," he said.
"It's the same when I am at Toulouse or with France, I have been criticised before and I hope it happens again because that means I am in the action.
"We all want to do everything right, all the time but that is just impossible. I hope I can use this experience to grow."
